The other day， When I was on my way to school， I saw Jack， a student of Grade 3 in our school， riding along the street. Suddenly a car was running towards him. The driver was so frightened that he knocked Jack down. Jack was hurt seriously. The driver got such a fright that he drove away quickly， leaving Tom helpless on the spot. Fortunately I saw what had happened and remembered the number of the car. I reported this to the police. Now the driver has been caught and will be punished for his wrong doing.
September 4th， Sunday Fine
This morning I went to the shoe shop to buy a pair of new shoes. When I got there， I noticed a foreign lady talking to a salesgirl. But the salesgirl didn’t understand what the foreigner was saying. They both looked worried. I went up to help them. The lady is an Australian. She wanted to buy a pair of travelling shoes. So I told it to the salesgirl. The lady was very glad when she took them. She sang high praise for my spoken English. Both of them expressed their thanks to me. I felt happy that I express myself freely in English.

A Good Example of Laid -off Workers
Liu Yaru， a woman worker， had worked in a weaving mill in Jinan for 14 years. In 1992 when she was 34， Mrs Liu was out of work. At the beginning， she stayed at home. She was worried and was not sure about finding another job. Some time later， she was no longer afraid of being looked down upon. She managed to find a job as a waitress at a teahouse. She does well in her job， and now many customers like to call at this teahouse. She makes a lot of money through her hard work. She has set a good example for the laid-off workers.
Miss Li is our English teacher. She always impresses us deeply with her lively English class.
One day when the first bell rang， the monitor stood up and said， “Our English teacher is going to have an operation today. It has not been decided yet who will give us the lesson. ”The class turned silent at his words. It seemed that no one would believe him. In fact， all of us were afraid that Miss Li would no longer be with us. At this moment， Miss Li appeared at the door. She looked tired and pale.
“I’ll be missing you badly， ”she said in a low voice， “I have asked the doctor to put off the operation till tomorrow because I don’t want you to miss a single class. ”She went on， “A new teacher will take my place and I hope you’ll get on well with him. I’ll come back as soon as I’m better. ”
Hearing this， all of us were moved to tears. What a good teacher we have.
